Operation Christmas Child 2020

3 Ways You Can Help at Shoal Creek:

1. Pack a shoebox (or two) at home. Operation Christmas Child time is HERE! Boxes, a flyer with instructions on how to pack a shoebox, and information sheets with age/gender group suggestions are available in the SCBC Library. Pick up a box (or two), purchase your items, and pack your own “Family Box” at home. Packing your own “Family Box” is a great way to teach your kids about missions and sharing the gospel. Then, bring it to the church on Sunday, November 22 for a special time of prayer and dedication. As families enter the Worship Center, they can lay their boxes at the alter before being seated. Note: If for some reason you know that date will not work for your family, bring your boxes into the library anytime before that date and fill out a Drop-Off Sheet at the circulation desk.
 
2. You can help with the OCC Drop-Off Center at Shoal Creek Baptist Church. The Drop-Off Center will be open specific hours beginning Monday, November 16 every day until Monday, November 23 and must be staffed during the scheduled Open hours. This year because of COVID-19, we are receiving boxes via drive-by. People dropping boxes off will NOT need to get out of their vehicle. Face Masks for workers are required.
